if it's a problem they will contact you, you can be sure about that

mailing it separately in an envelope would be a waste as it would likely get lost at the return facility as they don't have the processes to deal with something like that

I did that by accident once when I traded a white for black iPhone. They processed the return and all was fine. I think that they package a new one with all the refurbs anyway, so it probably just gets tossed into the recycle bin.

Wait till they contact you if its a big issue to them. I bet the USB only costs like 25 cents so they won't even bother with it.

Honest mistake, so don't worry

unless you are getting iphone 5 or Ipad 4, it has no use for you anyway.

I dont know, maybe send them an email saying that it can be picked up anytime they want. At least, you did remind them. Honest mistake.
